FR - For Starters

A few overview pictures on how far I got last year and where I start from this new year. Lots do this year to. The crane and some tracks is first on my to-do / wish list..  Jan 01, 2019 : A few overview pictures on how far I got last year and where I start from this new year. Lots do this year to.

FR - Paint Evening

Had some fun with paint this evening. My 3D printed figures got some, so did the atlas mine wagon and the details for the crane. The white paint on door and windows is kept one layer only, so not looking to neat.. I want the crane to look used, not new... Jan 06, 2019 : Had some fun with paint this evening.

FR - Mold Failures

Done further extended tests with making 3D printed molds during the holidays, sadly to the result of a big failure... White glue and PLA just likes each other to much. I solved several problems on the way, for example I can now make the molds as big as...

FR - Freelance Van

Designed and printed this freelance van a few days ago. At first I planned to make an extended version of the classic atlas chassis for it, but now looking at the pictures I think short atlas bogies would look even better. Will do both so I can see them..

FR - Van Chassis

Printed a second body this evening plus made below new drawing for a bogie chassis for this new wagon series. Still not sure which I like the most, will probably keep both versions, 2-axle and bogie variant.

FR - Mold & Van Chassis

This evening the roof tile mold was prepped with olive oil and got another coat of white glue. After two layers has fully dried out it will be very interesting to see the result when I try to lift it from the mold. Also did another turn on the Atlas ...

FR - New Atlas Wagons

Mold got it´s second layer filled in. Beside it is also the mold for the ridge tiles. I reached desired design with the chassis / bogies now! This last version feels final. During the time I also made a few new atlas wagons, meant to use the same chassis Jan 13, 2019 : Mold got it´s second layer filled in. Beside it is also the mold for the ridge tiles.

FR - Molds again

The mold for the ridge tiles was ready this afternoon. I could have used a bit more olive oil in the mold, but the principal works great! The other mold needs a bit more time to set. When both dried out properly they will be put on the roof of the crane. Jan 14, 2019 : The mold for the ridge tiles was ready this afternoon.

FR - Print Problems

Had problems with getting the prints to stay on the table last week. Tried several solutions. In the end it turned out to be the bed sheet which was way past it´s due date. After I changed it, suddenly all prints get very flat and crisp again .. : ) Jan 16, 2019 : Had problems with getting the prints to stay on the table last week. Tried several solutions.

FR - Mold final

PLA + white glue = LOVE! ..... Just amazing! One would think that a generous layer of olive oil would solve it ... Nop! ...   Took about 40 minutes just to remove it from the mold. Yes, it staid in one piece this time and Yes, it looks very nice painted.. Jan 17, 2019 : PLA + white glue = LOVE! ..... Just amazing!

FR - New Atlas Painted

Atlas wagons got some paint this evening. The open ones needs a bit more on the decks and all of course needs some wheels, but that is about it. Really pleased with these ones. I have one more timber version coming up which is not printed yet, but coming Jan 18, 2019 : Atlas wagons got some paint this evening.
